help need advice with tipping

What would an average tip and a good tip be for a private guide/boat captain for a week? Our group of five has rented a private house with boat and captain and he has been the best part of the trip so we don't want to under tip. Also any idea on tipping a caretaker who cleans every day?

10% tip for your captin and $10-$15 a day for your house keeper would be "fair". Anything above would be good/great IMO. I sure others would tip more and others less... I would treat them to dinner one night too.
